ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Disney World annual pass holders quickly secured reservations for the theme park reopen days on Friday morning.
The new Disney Park Pass system went live for pass holders sometime around 6 p.m. At 6:30 AM, the availability calendar showed that reservations were no longer available to cardholders on July 11, the day Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopened.
Later in the morning, the same calendar showed that reservations were no longer available for July 12-15. Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot will reopen on July 15.
Pass holders can book three reservation days at the same time.
With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Disney World will limit capacity in its parks when they reopen. To help manage attendance, all visitors must secure a park reservation for certain days.
The system first opened for Disney Resort Hotel guests on Monday, with many users reporting technical issues and glitches.
SeaWorld, which reopened earlier this month, also requires a reservation to access the park. Universal Orlando also limits capacity, but does not require reservations.
